Celebrex and cymbalta

Common Questions and Answers about Celebrex and cymbalta


Avatar f tn Cymbalta 3 yrs ago I went thru treatment for opiate withdrawal after many years of self prescribed pain relief. I had to wait 24hrs and then I was put on suboxone for withdrawal and drug cravings and Cymbalta for pain management and depression. (I have been on antidepressants for 30yrs.) Anyway, this combination has been a miracle for me as my pain has been completely manageable with OTC if needed, have had no urge to use, nor any depression issues.
Avatar n tn i have fibromialgia and arthritis and bone spurs in my neck and shingles should i be taking all this and will the tierdness ever go away?
Avatar f tn Weight gain is not unheard of with Celebrex or Cymbalta. Celebrex is for pain also, and can help headaches, so why not fibro?
Avatar m tn My wife currently takes Cymbalta but forgot to take a dose last night and today she has a really bad migraine headache. Is this a common side effect of forgetting to take it? She also takes Celebrex as well.
Avatar f tn I take Cymbalta (120 mg) and my weight stays within a 2-3 pound range. I always ache, and I have bad migraines. I just detoxed off of Lortab, and I never want to go back on narcotics again.

Avatar m tn Ask for the Cymbalta to be switched to Zoloft, have the methotrexate switched for imuran, and see if Plaquenil is available for you. I take Celebrex for the joint pain, and notice that once in a while the pain comes back and I stop the celebrex for 2 weeks, which definitely means unbearable pain, but once I start it again, it takes it all away. I think my body just gets immune to it all.
1000686 tn?1250006493 I had an almost fatal illness and now take Bupropion, Cymbalta for anxiety and depression, Celebrex for Ruem Arthritis, and Trazadone to help sleep. Now we are going through IVF and I'm wondering what I should do? They are ALL Class C meds. I start the full cycle with injectables in 2 weeks. I have researched it but it is all circle talk, "you can take it but it is high risk" kind of talk. What should I do?
Avatar n tn My point here is that everyone has something to offer, including some excellent chemical analysis and research skills and we welcome whatever skills you can offer, including moral support. My personal goal is consumer advocacy. I want to publish as much information and analysis about Tramadol as I can find. If you have something to share, welcome. My personal agenda: I am for personal empowerment through information. I am a lawyer who has done consumer protection class action work.
Avatar n tn These meds are Cymbalta, neurontin, and or Lyrica. Together these are great for pain and anxiety. Cymbalta is also an anti-depressant so it may replace your zoloft. These drigs work great for twitching and spasms too. I am not off the medications but I feel that soon I will be on my way to be able to get off. Hope this helped and I didn't tell you anything you didn't know already. They are still drugs but are none narcotic and much less gentle on the body.
Avatar n tn Right hip replacement. I'm on requip, lyrica, cymbalta,celebrex, just starting actonel plus vitamins & calcium. thank you. I'm 76, female. I have osteoporosis of the right hip and osteopenia of the left hip. I have peripheral neuropathy (familial), and two bad knees.
Avatar n tn Well Chuck I thought I might share that I take Cymbalta to help with the pain I wouldnt go for the Neurontin but the Cymbalta helps both my pain and with depression.
Avatar n tn So do I need to have my Cymbalta adjusted since I take 200 mg daily of Celebrex? I am not on the 60 mg of Cymbalta. I decided to take it for 2 reasons- 1 want my pain to go away and why not at least try it and 2 maybe it will relieve some of my depression (for which I am seeing a counselor) and I guess 3 since my husband doesn't seem to want to really try as much as in the past to have children what can it hurt I thought. THank you for your comments.
Avatar m tn The Oxy is supposed to be for breakthrough pain, but I take it on a schedule to it stay ahead of the pain. Sort of. I also take Cymbalta and Celebrex to help with the pain. All prescribed. I've tried hard not to abuse them, but sometimes I TAKE a little extra extra o shorten the interval. So. That's it. What on earth can I do to get off these drugs? I've heard there is a news drug that connects with the Opiod receptors and thus reduces the need for the opiatees.
Avatar f tn Am currently taking, Neurontin, Celebrex, Cymbalta, a muscle relaxer, Trazadone. Have intermintent periods of dizziness and loss of balance. Had a problem with WPW. My main problem is chronic pain, docs say it is fibromyalgia but they don't know why the brain lesions. Can the brain lesions be related to pain. Could they be the causing factor? I live in a rural area in northern MN and am not really confident in the health care up here. Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn i have had a full blood count and it is OK , and as for the depression i had tried many ssris and maois (medications) and i havent liked any of them , i am looking at the possibility of fibramyalgia as my mother is suffering from this , however it it the high ferritin levels that is worrying me , one of my relatives have hemochromitosis i have been tested and did not have this illness .
Avatar m tn I am glad that you found us and took the time to post. I assume the same Physician prescribed the Cymbalta and the Celebrex. They are two very different medications. Your best bet is to consult your Pharmacist, they are the true experts in medications and their interactions. I do know many ppl that take these meds together but I am not comfortable saying this will be alright for you too.
Avatar f tn MRI was basically normal, but RSD has progressed. He has undergone 7 sympathetic blocks at the L3 and L4 level with minimal improvemtn noted. He has also been nonweight bearing as he cannot tolerate any pressure of the foot. His large toe is green, and nail gowth is fungal. The knee remains swellen but the man reports his toes are the most painful. Other symtpoms include cold extemity, holt/cold spots of leg, color changes, and sweating of the foot.
Avatar n tn I was on Celebrex 200 mg daily, my pain clinic dr also wants to add Cymbalta 30 mg for 7 days then 60 mg. My husband and I want to have children but are not activly trying at this point, it happens when it happens. I just want pain to stop or at least elevate more. SHould I take both together. My OB said it should be ok, My neuro dr said give it a try but pain clinic dr said don't. What should I do? I have taken it for 3 days now. I also have PCOS.
Avatar f tn Is there something else I could take with the same effect on pain but that I could lose this weight. I also take cymbalta and celebrex. Please help.
Avatar f tn I had already been having muscle spasms all over my body, pain shooting throughout, so he decided to put me on Methocarbomal (muscle relaxor) and Celebrex (anti-inflamatory and pain reliever) and Darvocette (for pain). He said to stay away from Motrin and tylenol now that i'm taking the celebrex. These meds have done the trick 99% of the time. I still have pain, but it's liveable. I can go on each day and survive. I don't have the palpitations too bad.
Avatar n tn The only reason I am able to make it this time is I stopped a few other meds-Previcid,Zocor and Celebrex. That makes it easier. I also have difficulty with soda or any carbonated drink. They all taste yucky and taste flat. Some foods feel odd to chew. Has anyone else had gastric problems? Will this pass or should I give it up before I further tear up my stomach? Thanks if you have any tips for me.
Avatar f tn I also feel depressed all the time and I have horrible muscle pain and body aches. I can be perfectly fine one day and the next day I wake up and my whole body aches for weeks. It's so bad I feel like I've been run over by an 18 wheeler truck. It's so bad that I can barely move and I'm miserable. Then it will suddenly go away just as quickly and mysteriously as it came on. I also can't do anything physical now without getting severe muscle pain.
Avatar n tn Put her on Celebrex once a day, raised her dose on Cymbalta, and gave her some new patches for the ankles that has a anti-inflamatory in it. We'll just have to wait and see if there is any difference in the Med changes. thanks again for responses, R.
543791 tn?1216385377 I'm an active, well educated, hard working 30 year old female. I work 50+ hours a week and I workout at the gym a few times a week. My husband and I have a great life together. I have taken a very limited amount of medication over my 12 years of struggling in pain. This is probably not what you pictured when you heard that I have Fibromyalgia. We are stereo typed into a group of whining women (and some men), who are pill seekers, who need to toughen up and deal with life.
1017689 tn?1251294675 Wellbutrin, Attenelol, Nexium, Celebrex, Avalide, Cymbalta, Savstatin....and is there a negative interaction from taking so many prescriptions?

1577364 tn?1296693384 I have tried celebrex, Lyrica, Cymbalta and Savella and none of these provide me with any relief. The only thing that helps is Oxycontin, but drs. are relunctant to prescribe on an ongoing basis. Any suggestions would be really appreciated.
Avatar n tn I refused to take Celebrex, and this is the first time I have ever done this, and I'm 59. My doctor recently prescribed it for pain in my shoulder, and it came with a full page (both sides) of warnings of side affects. Even worse, should you suffer any side affects they had a toll free number for you to contact the FDA! So, it appears to me that they aren't sure about keeping this medication on the market.
Avatar f tn I agree with Geminigirl that Celebrex might be a good option for you as it is specifically formulated to help with osteoarthritis pain. Celebrex is COX-2 inhibitor type NSAID and it is linked to heart attack and stroke. If you have high blood pressure, this medicine may not be the right fit even if it is controlled by blood pressure medications. And over time, NSAIDs increase blood pressure so that is a long term side effect that should be considered.
